I knew someone who's horse got Cushings at 10 y/o, so it's not really an old horse disease. Just depends on the luck of the draw, unfortunately.
If he is Cushingoid, it's not a death sentence for him, but both of your lives will change dramatically.
I'll have to do some research on cushings. Our lives have already changed forever once due ot navicular, and he has just become sound again and getting back to being sound and riding, and now comes this issue. I've been keeping his riding light partly due to coming back from 2 months layup with his navicular and his long coat as it's getting warmer and any real amount of work I do on him he gets lathered up in white foam around the saddle area and in between his legs. Man, I was really hoping for him to have a come back now that he's sound again, but looks like we may be faced with another issue yet again, but if it is cushings we'll work through this problem together just like the navicular.
